Question Stephen King recommendations (beyond the usual…)

Hi folks,

Surprised to see Mr King didn’t have a general thread, so thought I’d start one up for general recommendations..

I usually dip in and out of Stephen King - I read IT a long time ago, and remember reading Dreamcatcher too, loving them both. More recently I read The Stand -also great, although I thought it drifted off towards the end. I’ve just started on Night Shift.

I’ve got a renewed interest in horror (though don’t let that limit recommendations), and picked up Salem’s Lot today, together with Insomnia (a blind purchase). However, I was surprised at how many titles had his name on that I hadn’t heard of and was after some guidance.

I have to admit to being put off some of his books if I’ve already seen tv adaptations – I know the Tommyknockers and Needful Things are frequently recommended, but whenever I hear of them I just think of Jimmy Smits, or Bonnie Bedelia!. Are these up there with his best?

Another one I saw and nearly bought was The Talisman (one of his co-writing efforts) – any comments?
